How does your family deal with the potentially tricky issue of drinking wine during regular family meals?
I’m not thinking of special occasions, or even ‘Sunday Lunch’, but rather those increasingly rare evening events where parents and children happen to sit down together for a meal.
Are you happy to pour a glass of wine with your meal with the kids at the table (presumably not drinking)? Maybe you even have an aperitif while you cook?!
My own kids are still relatively young, so we still often eat separately since they have early bedtimes and routines that make it harder to eat together, but we do try to sit together whenever we can.
I’ve seen many comments on other sites about parents being reticent to “drink in front of the kids”, and also the opposite view about how it is important to see parents drinking responsibly.
What is your take?
